Quoting Quiverfull: So If You’re Humble & Godly Enough the Abuse Will Magically Stop?

quotingquiverfull

by Rick Thomas at Rick Thomas.net - Should I Count My Mean Husband More Significant Than I Count Myself?Editor's note: This is one of those crazy-making pieces of illogic that set women up for abuse in Quiverfull Evangelical Christianity, the magic formula of being humble enough, Godly enough, pure-minded enough, good enough that it will stop the abuse. Wake up and smell the coffee, Church, humility and humbleness will NEVER stop an abuser who is determined to hurt you. There are piles of dead or battered women who tried just this advice and still got beaten. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Overusing ‘Abuse’?

quotingquiverfull

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - The Overuse of the Word 'Abuse'Editor's note: So if your husband is looking at porn or telling you that you're a piece of garage this is somehow a reaction to something you have done? I don't think so. Abusive takes many subtle forms that are sometimes hard to see when you're in a relationship but someone else making the choice to abuse you is not your fault! She should rename her blog because she's not learning a damn thing except how to silence and shame abuse victims. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Force Your Body To Turn On, Or Just Fake That Orgasm?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles at Biblical Gender Roles.com - How Can a Husband Enjoy Sex That is Grudgingly Given by His Wife?Editor's note: As always we're linking to Dood Obsessed With His Penis through Do Not Link.com. No need to inflate his ego any larger by increasing his Google rankings, which he's crowed about several times in his blog. Okay, this is getting even weirder than usual, first he says that women need to focus on their bodies being ready for sex and follows that by saying she should fake her orgasm if she's not turned on. Translation: he does not care if she enjoys it as long as Mr. Happy gets off. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Christian Economic Abuse is A-Okay With Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from his blog Biblical Gender Roles – Can a Christian husband deny his wife equal access to his income?Editor's note: According to this guy the pastor is the judge, jury and almost executioner in all matters involving marital disputes. This isn't very fair to either spouse or even the pastor. Most pastors have better things to do than verbally spank people with the Bible for behaving badly. Why does a woman need the pastor's permission to leave someone that is clearly participating in economic abuse against her? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Christian Economic Abuse Is A-Okay With Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from his blog Biblical Gender Roles - Can a Christian husband deny his wife equal access to his income?Editor's note: Not if he wants to have consensual sex with her ever again.This guy seems to be hell bound and determined to do all the things that would clearly lead his wife to not be in the mood for sexy fun times. This is what Economic Abuse can look like, no matter what your views on equality in marriage are. I'm guessing he thinks that the husband automatically gets access to the woman's wages even as he's controlling access to finances for the wife.This is also why so many Christian women struggle when their husbands die with the issue of making … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Have Sex With Me Or Else?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from BiblicalGenderRoles.com – 8 Steps to Confront Your Wife’s Sexual RefusalEditor's note: And now we approach the worst part of the entire piece, a list of how to force your wife to have sex with you. Many of these steps fall under a label we call "Economic Abuse" here. His approach would be recognized as abusive by more people.  Any man that tries these things on you in order to control you is someone you should not be with. Step 2 would end the marriage for me, before we got to the old 'control her with money' thing. This whole list is shameful and not Christian. … [Read more...]

Fascinating Womanhood Review: Perfect Follower

perfectfollower

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons When I first started this series, I mentioned how Helen had the unpleasant habit of appearing to be quite supportive. In many places, she tells women that they need to be bold, strong– she even uses the word assertive at times. However, I also mentioned how whenever she says something that seems forward thinking, she always undoes it in the surrounding texts. In this way, she’s a bit like Lucy and the football. She tells you that it is perfectly alright to expect your husband to listen to you, or to not be abused, but then she does complete about-face in everything else she says. … [Read more...]
